Holotradband, featured Tuesdays at Seattle jazz club
The New Orleans Creole Restaurant, playing Rhythm of the Tambourine:
"With its driving rhythm section and irrepressible horn line, Holotradband may well be the red-hottest, most exuberantly uninhibited ensemble of its kind on the West Coast today."
—Doug Bright, Heritage Music Review
"What is Holotradband? In truth, it swings, it offers drive, energy, and a sound that does not overwhelm a listener's ears. Its harmonies fit just right and its variety of tunes cuts a wide swath through the early decades of jazz…It is, in a word, refreshing."
"No-nonsense…hot and tight…their ensemble work is impeccable."
—Gary Sorenson, Director, Jazz In the Olympics Festival
"Holotradband plays crisp, sparkling arrangements of New Orleans and Chicago jazz with a three-horn front line."
—Paul de Barros, Seattle Times
"…take two parts New Orleans jazz and mix it with one part swing to create a really hot sound. They will not disappoint!"
—Gary Miller, Director, Northwest Balboa Festival
"Holotradband handles everything from Jelly Roll Morton and Clarence William's classics of the 1920s to swing favorites of small groups of the 1940s. The band is a Seattle institution."
